A couple of weeks ago, I was down in country Victoria again for the annual Port Fairy Folk Festival. I’ve been going now for about 15 years and have met and made many friends over this time. Not so long ago, I used to lug my guitar down as a group of us used to play a weekend-long session in one of the local pubs there. These days however, I only take the camera.
The photo’s in today’s post were taken at Cape Bridgewater which is about an hours drive west of Port Fairy. It’s a really beautiful place but, typical of Victoria, the weather was really erratic. They say you can experience four seasons in one day down here and I can attest that this is absolutely true. Rain, sun, cold, biting wind, rain and some more sun – all in the space of a couple of hours. No sooner would I have the camera mounted on my tripod ready to take some long-exposure shots and the rain would tumble down. 5 minutes later, the sun would be out and I’d be peeling off my raincoat and hoodie because it was too warm. Regardless, it didn’t detract from the gorgeous vista, crashing waves and squawking seagulls. Not much could.
